Dear Sun Spots: Sun Spots is a great service. We would like to see the whole space filled only for Sun Spots. I’ve seen many get their wishes fulfilled. A lady I was speaking with at a health care facility stressed she wished she had a small portable sewing machine. She wants to be doing something. She could put it right on her stand.

She wants to sew up little rips and tears for others. Is there anyone out there who would donate one to her? If you’re not using it, you would make a very nice elderly lady happy.

Arrangements could be made to pick it up. Contact Muriel Cormier at 26 Bolster St., Auburn, ME 04210 or 783-2516. If there’s no answer leave a message on the answering machine and I’ll get back to you. Thank you so much. – Muriel, Auburn.

Dear Sun Spots: Is there anyone in the Lewiston-Auburn area that who picks up snow to take away? – No Name, No Town.

Sun Spots located two people who offer snow removal in the area. Contact Rick at 212-9979 or Ryan at 577-0346. They both offer a 10 percent discount for senior citizens. Also, check out the classified section of the Sun Journal under the heading “Snow Services” for new listings.

Dear Sun Spots: I am writing on behalf of my mother in Stratton. She read recently that a group is putting together a new Maine Rebekahs cookbook that has some of the old and some new recipes. She would like to buy one, but doesn’t know where to find it. I did a Google search, but had no luck. Perhaps you can find information on that. Thanks. – Nancy Tate, visiting from Arizona.

Answer: The Rebekahs have two cookbooks for sale right now. They are available from any lodge, so contact the lodge in your area if there is one. Or, we found ordering information from the Web site,

The “Century Cookbook” is $10 plus $3 for shipping, and the the “1894-2006 Cookbook” is $15 plus $3 for shipping.

To order, send a check or money order payable to Rebekah Assembly of Maine to Helen Witham, chairperson of the cookbooks, 66 High St., Oakland, ME 04963.

Dear Sun Spots: To the reader looking for line dancing, there is usually a beginners class through Lewiston Adult Education. Check it out. – Annie, Lewiston.
